Great location, clean and comfortable rooms”
Staff, location, value
This was my fourth time staying in this small budget guesthouse and I would not hesitate to return again. There are actually three separate buildings, Amber House, Amber Villa, and an annex. This time my room was in the annex across the street from Amber House. The rooms are simple but comfortable and have every amenity I needed including mini fridge, room safe, electric kettle, and free wifi. Breakfast is included with the price of the room and I was pleased with the selection of fresh fruit with musli and yogurt, various standard Western egg dishes, and fresh juice. The staff is super friendly and helpful and there are multiple tuk tuk drivers parked outside who can take you anywhere you’d like to visit. Great value for the money for a stay in Phnom Penh.

Very comfortable stay”
Great location, most of places of interest are 15-20 min walk away, or a few minutes by tuk-tuk, lots of bars and restaurants in street 278, very friendly staff and nice room.
My stay at the Amber House was excellent. Location was great, lots of bars and restaurants in St 278, beautiful temples just around the corner, 15 min. walk to the riverside and the main sightseeing places, including the National Museum and the Royal Palace, close to the Central Market and the Night Market. The staff is very friendly and efficient, always ready to help or answer your questions. The fastest Wi-Fi I've had so far in Asia with very good signal. The room was spacious and quiet, Queen double bed, big wardrobe, nice clean bathroom, TV set and safe box inside the room. Cleaning and laundry service every day. Great choice of food for breakfast. I've got literally nothing to complain about. Great service and good value for money. I have recommended it already and will recommend it to anyone who's looking for a place to stay in Phnom Penh.

The stay was okay, but overpriced”
very friendly staff, close to independence monument
The stay was okay, the rooms at the back are big but not very clean and by night very noisy because another building is right in front of the window. i even could not close my window completely. overall i think it is overpriced, 20 usd per night would be okay. the rooms seem to be different, so the front rooms seem to be better according to some reviews here. so just try to get a room there because the back rooms are not that nice...

greedy unhelpful staff”
tv channels, near a great indian, location
our stay at amber house was ruined by the staff who were really unhelpful, all they wanted to do was make extra money from you where they could. the room was fine (bathroom was tiny with a shower almost over the toilet!) but we really couldn't wait to leave because of the staff. it's a massive shame as if they were a bit more accommodating, our stay would have been far more pleasant.

We felt very welcomed and were very comfortable.”
Friendly staff, breakfast, location
Excellent. The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. We don't like cities very much but this hotel sold the city to us

Large, clean rooms. Overall pleasant.”
quiet location, nice rooms
This was my second time staying at Amber Guest House. The room was large and was the first place I stayed were I had a bathtub in the bathroom (bathtubs aren't in all rooms though, as I didn't have one last time I stayed here). Quiet neighborhood with nice restaurants.

Clean and comfortable rooms - Overall great stay! ”
large rooms, nice neighborhood
I stayed here twice during my travels through Cambodia -both times were positive experiences. I had a larger bed (Queen or king sized), the hot shower was hot (not lukewarm), the decor was nicer than other guest houses I stayed at, the staff were friendly. The location is a nice neighborhood, the shops were little more expensive but with some good restaurants and bars. It's about 15-20 min walk or 2 minute (1$) motorcycle ride to downtown. The distance from the center hustle and bustle meant that it was calm and quiet at night.

Highly recommended guesthouse in Phnom Penh”
Location, comfort, staff
I have stayed here on two occasions and would choose nowhere else for future visits to Phnom Penh. Conveniently located, comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff, and excellent breakfast make Amber House/Villa an excellent choice for among the guesthouses in Phnom Penh.

A bit of a disappointment”
Good room size, easy access to city
Problems started at check in. I arrived with my girlfriend to be told that the room t&c stated that I would only get one free breakfast. This was not stated clearly when booking. The room, though very large, was actually within the reception area which meant that all curtains had to be kept drawn to ensure any level of privacy. Room facilities appeared good; bed was large and quite comfy, large fridge, good sized bathroom and joy of joys, a bath! Unfortunately the bath plug did not work well which meant water drained out when you tried to run a bath. The shower was good however, with decent temperatures and pressure. The next morning we ordered breakfast for two. I went for a simple omelette, while my girlfriend chose a Khmer breakfast. When it arrived it was a total let down. My omelette was tiny, perhaps the smallest I have been served, and was plain with the ham etc on the side (surely adding to the omelette isn't that hard?) My gf's rice was way undercooked and had to be sent back. Even when done, she found it a total let down. The staff, especially at night, seem to spend their time out on the pavement playing cards so you often had to wait for any service. One minor good point is that they offer free laundry service for the first 5 items, quite handy for the weekend traveller. But overall I found the hotel a disappointment and not anywhere as good as is portrayed on its site. The casual attitude of staff, the way they treated my Khmer girlfriend (an accounting student and not a bar girl as they seemed to view her) and the truly awful food all add up to a 'do not return' decision. On an up side, the environs of the hotel seem to be filled with several good bars and restaurants, so I would look at that area again
